Another Dose of Your Daily Outrage  
debunkingwhite - The American Eugenics movement. Maybe I'm just some sort of idiot, but I found myself less and less surprised that such a thing could happen in America the more I read.

Slashdot - Creationist Textbook Stickers Declared Unconsitutional. The comments are especially caustic, as the creationism/intelligent design/darwinism/evolution wackos seem to have emerged wholesale from the woodwork.

Finally, Slashdot - Harvard Pres Says Females Naturally Bad at Mathwonderlandkat has already written about it, but it bears repeating - academic tenure was designed for professors to be able to state unpopular theories, but 1. he's not tenured, 2. that doesn't mean we can't still call him a fuckwit. I would also recommend the comments on this article, since the predominantly male Slashdot audience seems to be especially good and bad at this discussion.

Oh, and elfdope - I don't mean to offend your chemical sensibilities, but clusters of aluminum atoms have been found to have properties of other elements.

I hate slashdot so so so much. I wish I hadn't clicked on that link.

The real kicker about Eugenics is that there were intelligent Black American leaders that desired it as well - for the betterment of the race as a whole, you understand. Ms. English is a big researcher of this - she was the one who told me. I wish I could have talked to her more. She's really cool.

Aw, man... The eugenics and math sites totally don't help me in my attempts to like people again.
